Real Madrid beat Atletico Madrid 1-0 at Santiago bernabeu to extend their League lead to 6 points before Barcelona host Levante on Sunday at Camp Nou.
The French striker converted Ferland Mendy’s cross from six yards out to give Real a deserved win. Fifth-placed Atletico, who have not won in five games, were disappointing, although Angel Correa hit the post.
Real could have won by more with half-time substitute Vinicius Jr forcing two saves from Jan Oblak. Gareth Bale was left out of the squad despite being fit.
Zinedine Zidane’s side are now unbeaten in 21 games and have won eight in a row – including a penalty shootout success over Atletico in the Spanish Super Cup.
